RATING: 12+ for some mature themes of the swashbuckling adventure-romance type. ___________________ This historical romance, perhaps the greatest cloak-and-sword story ever written, relates the adventures of four fictional swashbuckling heroes who loyally served the French kings Louis XIII and Louis XIV. When the dashing young D’Artagnon arrives in Paris from Gascony, he becomes embroiled in three duels with the musketeers Athos, Porthos, and Aramis. But when he proves himself by fighting with, not against the three Musketeers, they form a quick and lasting friendship. The daring escapades of the four pit them against the master of intrigue, Cardinal Richelieu, and the quintessential wicked woman, Lady de Winter.
